Python Found on Bay Shore Street
A 2 ½-foot python was found abandoned on a residential Bay Shore street on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Suffolk County SPCA, which is investigating the incident.
The snake, a Ball Python, was found on a grassy area on the corner of Longshore Street and Reilly Street in a glass container with a sliding screen top and blue tape affixed to the corners of the tank to hold the top on, said Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk SPCA.
About an inch of rain water had collected in the bottom of the tank, but the snake appeared to be in good health, he added.
A $1,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for abandoning the snake.
Anyone with information can contact the Suffolk County SPCA at 631-382-7722. All calls will be kept confidential.
